Investigators Say Wrong Person Arrested In Domestic Disturbance

Police originally arrested a male for his alleged part in a domestic dispute, but have since discovered that the female was the primary aggressor. Officers are now looking to arrest Shante Jackson on felony charges.

Jackson, 25, was fighting with a 24-year-old male, police say. The responding officers arrived on the 1000 block of Palacio View and found that she had a cut on her lip and was describing being strangled by the man.

Detectives from the Domestic Violence Unit discovered, however, that Jackson had allegedly been the aggressor. They say she flattened the tires on a vehicle the couple shared and hit the man in the head with a frying pan when he tried to leave.

They also found no evidence that he had tried to strangle her.

The male was originally arrested, but was released without charges.

Officers are looking for Jackson and say they will arrest her for the felony charges of Second Degree Assault and Criminal Mischief.

No description of Jackson was provided.

Anyone with information should call 634-STOP.

    After a physical altercation with the wife I instructed her to call the police as it was the next scene in the typical female abuse drama. The cops showed up and I wasn't arrested. The only reason I can think of that I wasn't taken away is that she must have appeared extremely crazy to the cops. Yeah, some of them are looney, not the weak victims they like to portray.

    A major reason men hesitate to put the ring on the finger. I appreciate women who admit that women are crazy.

    Just another fubar in a long line of fubar's by the CSPD. Arresting the wrong person, "losing" or "misplacing" evidence, and not providing discovery in the set time frames clearing shows that CSPD does not care about the Constitutional Rights of the individuals they are sworn to protect. The unfortunate thing is that not all the officers fit into this category but those who do have brought disgrace to a once proud organization!

    CSPD is not very bright. I'll bet officer Tomish was in on it. For a few sexual favors, she goes free, and he goes to jail. I've seen it way to many times.

    Wow, well Brad, that's dissapointing to hear. The equal justice foundation may be your only hope if you have been falsly accused of DV. I know of several cases where it took the falsly accused $15,000 or more just for them to drop the charges. They don't want to fight someone who is going to put up a fight. The DA is just as guilty. They rather go after someone who doesn't have much money and less fortunate in the education department. That way its easier to move into that senior DA position. I guess they forgot they have to rot in hell for all the unethical things they have done, but, oh well.

    See, it's not always the man. Women can be crazy. My brother's wife is crazy like this. She's just the kind of person to start a physical fight, and call the cops the second the man defends himself. So women can do anything a man can do huh? Except suffer the consequences. Put your bra back on, go have some babies and learn how to cook. Let the men be men. BTW I am a woman, and I'm 28. I totally believe women are pushing men to behave like children.

      Gloria Steinem admitted her role in the CIA program to "liberate women" in the seventies. Had nothing to do with womens right." It was a way to tax more of the workforce and weaken the family. It worked.

        Absolutely. Now, because women want to do everything men can do, men don't have to learn how to be men. Women take charge way too much. And this is what we have teaching our future leaders. Women were made women for a reason: we aren't good at being men.

    Go figure, I am so tired of the female always having to be the victim in everyone's eyes and the male is always the perp. Here is another textbook case where the cops automatically arrested the male because the female accused him of something. I think that females that falsely accuse men of crimes should serve the sentence that the male would have served if he had been found guilty. By the way, why should you not be a dweeb on Christmas? Is it a crime? The calendar isn't prejudice and doesn't care what day it is. I say be a dweeb when you want to.

    Greg, I hate to tell you, but, Colorado Springs cops get paid more than many big city cops such as New York. Do the research and you will see.

    HAHA! Don't thank CSPD. You get what you pay for, (hint: they don't get paid much). Their officers are not good at investigating ANYTHING. In fact, 95% of the time they don't even ask the male what happened, and will make an arrest on hearsay charges. The COPS in Colorado Springs are dirty. When a larger percent of COPS get arrested out of CSPD than the citizens per capita, that's pretty pathetic.

      Not paid much. They're basic P.O. starts at $65K. Granted I make much more then that, but that amount of money is better then a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Also, your statistics are so far off it shows you are only posting your emotions and nothing of factual substance.
